A state Department of Children and Family Services report finds there has been a 77% increase in the amount of juvenile human trafficking victims aged 12 or less. Juveniles account for over 52% of the 681 identified victims in 2017.
Author of the report Walter Fahr says part of the increase has to do with better identification methods.
"There's been a lot more focus on human trafficking at both the adult and juvenile level. And this is being reflected on people reporting this."
